Korean Abstraction Meets Venetian Splendor

The comprehensive catalogue accompanying the exhibit at the Palazzo Fortuny in Venice features an internationally famous Korean artist whose work has received little attention in Germany until now. Yun Hyong-keun was one of the most prominent abstract monochromists. He belongs to a generation of artists whose influence over art has been crucial since the end of the Korean War. In the 1970s Yun Hyong-keun joined the Dansaekhwa movement, a leading group of Korean artists whose monochromatic paintings intensively explored the effects and nature of color. This volume is a cornucopia of artistic and personal materials from the estate of Yun Hyong-keun, which have provided profound insight into the life and work of one of the twentieth century’s most important Korean artists.

Yun Hyong-keun (1928–2007) was deeply affected by his experiences during the Korean War. Under the difficult circumstances of the war and the post-war era, he developed a special sense of art that is expressed in his thoroughly sensitive, spiritual paintings.
